Congratulations to the 2005 European Basketball Champions... Greece?!?!

Greece is the 2005 European Basketball Champion, beating Germany 78-62 in the finals. There's not much else to say about this other than these guys came out of nowhere. No Serbia-Montenegro, no Lithuania, not even France.

It seems that Tony Parker also played pretty poorly, attributing this to tired legs. The guy's 23 years old. How does a 23 year old professional athlete have tired legs? Hopefully he can get some rest and this doesn't hurt him for the Spurs upcoming title defense.
